    Anyone else a parent?

    I have a four year old and one on the way due in July.

    As I stated in another thread, I'm losing my office, but I'm happy to just as long as the kid gets directly to work.

    Oh my...LOL...LOL....I don't think kids get jobs and leave home until they're 30 years old nowadays. Seems every generation takes longer to leave the nest.

    Congratulations to you and your wife.

    I have a son and a daughter. They are both in their early 40s now. I have 4 granddaughters. Three by my son and one by my daughter.
    Let me say, my grand-kids are more fun than my kids ever were, well, kinda. You can spoil them and send them home. :))

    Mine will be working as soon as she turns 16. I think it was pivotal in instilling a work ethic I still use today.

    Thanks!

    I see the way Grandparents are and I can wait to be one, but I look forward to it being far down the road.


    Thank you very much!

    Just saw the sonogram yesterday, my little one is growing!

    They think we are farther along than originally thought. Due date is anywhere from end of June to early July.

    Children make you understand and enjoy the meaning of life. My wife and I have 2 aged 32 and 26. Thank God they live just a couple of hours away. No grandkids yet but there is lots of time for them. :cool:

    I'm sorry to hear that.

    I was more or less raised by my Grandparents.

    You said it FOUR, mine are just shy of 23 and 20, so most of my gun money is going to college. To you guys with young kids and kids on the way, congratulations, and remember to spend as much time with them as possible because you'll never get that time back!

    I spent all weekend with my Daughter.

    She's excited about having a little brother or sister.
